For every download of the EP (FREE or with donation) between now and Christmas Day, I will donate $1 to Americares for emergency response in the Philippines. Typhoon Hagupit is predicted to make landfall this weekend affecting communities that are still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan from just over a year ago. Americares supports the affected areas by providing medical care and supplies as well as helping to restore damaged health care centers.

If you wish to donate as well, you can “name your own price” for the EP, and all sales will go directly to Americares typhoon relief.

Thanks and happy holidays! ‪#‎hashtagmusicchallenge‬ ‪#‎righton‬ #‪#‎doublehashtag‬ ‪#‎reliefPH‬
